Loudoun County Creates Ad-Hoc Committee In Hopes Of Landing Amazon’s HQ2


With 37 days left to submit its request for proposal in hopes of landing “the deal of the decade” -- Amazon’s highly sought after second headquarters known as HQ2 -- Loudoun County on Tuesday approved the creation of an ad-hoc committee to help its Department of Economic Development land the deal.

The establishment of the ad-hoc committee comes as Loudoun -- and essentially every jurisdiction in the D.C. metro area -- competes for the prized project.

Supervisors said that since the search for Amazon’s second headquarters was announced by the company Sept. 7, they had received numerous texts messages and calls from constituents both in support and opposed to the deal.

Buddy Rizer, the director of the county’s Department of Economic Development, told supervisors he and his team spent most of the last four days planning and going over scenarios on how they could land the deal.
